Why hello there! It's good to be writing again.
I have been on a bit of an unintentional hiatus. The fall was really busy with getting the girls settled in their brand new and utterly fantastic private schools, and then in January, we moved back overseas.
I know. We are nuts.
The thing is, things were going smashingly well for the girls in the U.S., but lousy for us as a family. The grownups were working crazy hours, and we were always rushing around, and it was no fun at all. And then I got a pretty great job offer in a cool tropical place with terrible Internet service. And we were off.
It's been really nice. We have a lot more time together as a family, and our quality of life has gone way up. I had a lot of angst over moving the girls again, but they've had an easy transition and are happy. Their new school is decent. They have friends and activities, and we have a big yard. And we can go to the beach on the weekends.
All in all, things are really good. Not perfect, because life isn't, but we are happy and well. What's new with you?
